Meet The “Multi-Lingual Poetry Appreciation Group”

This post answers to Eugi’s weekly prompt which is “Midnight”: “Bonsoir, mes cheres,” said Beatrice, the French host of this weeks poetry club meeting, when all four middle-aged ladies were assembled in her garden room. Marjory sat as usual on the thick wooden plant shelf with her back towards the windows into Beatrice’s impeccable garden. Beatrice smiled as she remembered Marjory entering the room for their first meeting of the MuPAG short for “multi-lingual poetry appreciation group”. Marjory just looked outside in disgust, moved a flower pot to the side and sat down facing the room. She never said a Read More

Did the Pandemic make You read More or Less?

When times get rough, I grab a book. I either read a romance, fantasy or sci-fi book to distract myself and relax. Or I grab a non-fiction book to learn more about the problem that bothers me or help with my mental health. However, over the past year, I read several bloggers who said they couldn’t read because of the stress the pandemic caused them. Their plight reminded me that I had several times in my life where I could not find a book to read. I ignored the pandemic a little because of a health condition. However, I currently Read More

Just A Short Update

Disclaimer: This post uses an affiliate link to Hive Books. Hello ladies, how are you? I hope your life rocks and rolls along well and if not that you have all the support you need. I suffer a little from imposter syndrome I just wanted to let you know that all is well here. I am only suffering a little from imposter syndrome. Why on earth should my writing interest anyone? And how can I keep up writing with my job and life and everything? Well, of course, it can’t interest anyone if I do not write or post. Duh, Read More

Liberating on Wordless Wednesday

Happy Wordless Wednesday out there in the wild, wild depths of the blogosphere 😉 . Today I make it nearly wordless 😉 I believe we have to liberate our minds first before we can make any changes in society. What do you think?

I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me That 20 Years Ago

Happy Tuesday, all of you lovely people. Does your week rock? I hope so and if not that you find all the support you need. Last week I got a little into my procrastinating mind. I had hoped so much, I was over that. For a long time, I managed to just get on with my tasks and goals, but last week my inner critic got the upper hand and hit hard. All the unhelpful thinking loops that bother me for years turned up out of nowhere: “Your writing is sh..”, “You tried before, you can’t keep this up” and Read More

Just Do It?

Hello out there, all you lovely ladies. It’s good to see you :-). Please sit down, with your favourite hot or cold drink and enjoy a moment of quiet reflection. It will be brief today :-). Last week I promised you to share a couple of my life lemons and some of the solutions . However, I have some trouble to concentrate at the moment. The sun is shining outside. The sky is light blue and some clouds are spreckled all over it. The birds are singing and nature calls me to come outside. I am trying to write this Read More

Thinking on Wordless Wednesday

Hello out there, how is life where you are? I very much hope you and yours are well and that you are getting some freedoms back. And if you are still kept safe with lock-downs that you can make the most of your spare time. If you have it. I am always surprised how the news and other tv programs assume that “we all are stuck at home”. Well, we aren’t. Cleaners, shop workers, hospital staff, police, fire men and women and many more didn’t have the luxury of furlough or working from home. And while I can understand that Read More

Life Lemons & Possible Solutions (free download)

Hello ladies, how are you? I hope you have lots of lemonade available instead of lemons in this incredible time. And if you lack the recipes like me then please come along for the ride to find them. 🙂 Being mindful can create action Last week, I pondered why we can’t simply be without achieving anything. I shared some of my thoughts about Mindfulness something I am practising for a couple of years. It certainly has changed my life for the better but there are some things left that I haven’t figured out yet. “Simply being” helps me to accept Read More

Being a Lady on Wordless Wednesday

Hello ladies, how are you today? I hope this week finds you well and motivated and if not, that you get all the support you need to turn the week around. 🙂 Ah, I feel I cheated a little so far with “Wordless Wednesday”. Well, not because I use quite a lot of words for my posts but because I haven’t used my own photos. I have a thing for the sky and believe no matter where we are in our life that the sky is the limit. So I am going to share sky photos with motivating quotes from now Read More
